Student Michigan Pharmacists Association
The Student Michigan Pharmacists Association (SMPA) is an affiliated chapter of the Michigan Pharmacists Association (MPA) that promotes engagement in and activism for the profession. MPA’s vision is for its members to be an influential force in developing health policy and optimizing patient health, safety, and medication management. University of Michigan members of the SMPA represent the will of the students to the MPA through the Student Pharmacist Executive Council.
The University of Michigan chapter of SMPA offers networking and mentorship opportunities with leaders in pharmacy and provides a platform for involvement in legislative affairs at the state and national level. At U-M, SMPA holds financial, ethics, legislative, and community service events.
SMPA represents student pharmacists at the three colleges of pharmacy in Michigan:
- University of Michigan College of Pharmacy
- Ferris State University College of Pharmacy
- Wayne State University Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.
